Dr. Han Can Provide the Results You Need

before restorative dentistry
after restorative dentistry
Periodontal disease and multiple missing teeth were taking a serious toll on this patient's happiness and quality of life. Gum and bone tissue recession had caused the teeth to become mobile, and their bite had become unbalanced and unstable as a result. Dr. Han completely rehabilitated the patient's bite by resolving the tissue recession and performing an implant-supported teeth-in-a day treatment.

Why Does Board Certification Matter?

Dr. Han earned board certification in periodontics by demonstrating expert-level ability and passing an intensive written and oral examination. Dentists don't have to be board-certified to provide dental implants or restorations, but those who have earned this distinction have proven their skills and knowledge to the authorities in the field. If you need to replace missing teeth, choosing a board-certified periodontist like Dr. Han who specializes in implants and implant restorations is the surest way to achieve excellent results and long-lasting benefits.
